2 Thanksgiving Recipes with Country Crock

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I am substituting Country Crock into all of my recipes this holiday season as it contains 0 trans fat and no cholesterol.  Here are two recipes that will be out on my table, but not for long and the creamy, fresh-from-the-farm buttery taste gets gobbled up in no time.

The first recipe I am sharing is a unique spin on the carrot side dish with a Carrot Souffle'.  Ott, E raved about this dish and has requested it again.  The flavors of this dish will be sure to compliment your Thanksgiving feast!

Ingredients: 1 cup carrots (peeled and cut into slices), 1/4 cup country crock, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 5 T. Sugar, 2 T. flour, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. vanilla, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Directions: In a small pan cook carrots in boiling water until tender (approx: 5-7 minutes). Drain and place carrots in a blender and pulse to soften; add country crock, eggs, milk, sugar, flour, baking powder, vanilla and cinnamon. Blend until smooth, pour into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Ummm.... you can almost smell the rich flavors of this side dish through your monitor.
And my second recipe is for Sweet Potato Pie.  This can be served as either a side dish or dessert.  It reminds me a lot of pumpkin pie and taste great with some whipped cream on top!

Ingredients: 2 cups cooked sweet potatoes, 1/4 cup country crock, 1 cup sugar, 1 (15 oz) can evaporated milk, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. ground allspice, 1/2 tsp. vanilla and one frozen pie crust shell.
Directions: Blend sweet potatoes until smooth.  Add country crock and blend.  Next, add sugar and evaporated milk.  Finally, add the egg and spices.
Pour into a pre-baked pie shell and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.  Let cool on a wire rack.  Slice and serve cold.

Give Country Crock a try this holiday season and see how your family reacts to the flavor.
